    Considering what he pulled off the other night, I think he still has a passion for the game.

    I've worked it out. Deira is actually seven years old.

    If somebody was being racist to the extent that he has been homophobic, he's have been condemned by now

    I don't know why you guys are being so harsh on deira. He is a Pakistani who most probably have been raised in Pakistan. The Pakistani community is very conservative and not very welcoming to the gay culture due to variety of reasons with religion being the central one. It's not deira's fault, he has been socially conditioned to look down on gays and consider it as something sick and unnatural. All he has done is voiced his opinions on the issue and isn't that the main purpose of discussion boards.

    Excuses. And not very good ones. He's been on the board for a while, he should know what's acceptable by now. Not to mention it's in the forum rules!

    Yeah, it's genuinely offensive.
